There will always be those who mean to do us harm. To stop them, we risk awakening the same evil within ourselves. Our first instinct is to seek revenge when those we love are taken from us. But that's not who we are... When Christopher Pike first gave me his ship, he had me recite the Captain's Oath. Words I didn't appreciate at the time. But now I see them as a call for us to remember who we once were and who we must be again. And those words: Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise . Her five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before. ( James T. Kirk )
This MOC is designed with just eight pieces (shown below) and is my entry into round one of TEPBC (The Eight Piece Building Challenge). If you are interested in joining, here's the link: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/24709
This is the list of pieces used in the creation of this MOC.

This is now perfect!
(One more tip, if you can, try to render the models, and for dark objects (models) choose brighter background.)
Both images are renders, even though they are kind of hard to identify as that. I have been experimenting with POV-Ray's color settings, planes, light sources, and various other things, so the dark background was something I just threw in there to set a "warp space" mood. I'll increase the light level, though. I am glad you like it!

Great build, but maybe there is a problem to connect the pieces.
Thank you for your comment, bigboy. I just went through all my bins (sometimes, even eight pieces can be a challenge to find) and I put together a representative model in real bricks. All of the connections are sound and solid.
The main potential problem would be between the two round plates. The dish-shaped one is connected to the donut-shaped one by friction only, but this connection is actually quite strong. In Lego 75031, the cockpit piece is connected to the round plate in the same way.
Also, the "brick 1x1 w. 1 knob" is properly and completely connected to the round plate.
I added building instructions in case you have further concerns, and I will upload a few pictures of my brick-built prototype soon. Thank you for your feedback.
